My first vivid memory of film involves Alfred Hitchcock and the film North by Northwest, with Cary Grant. The scene is where Grant retrieves the knife from the back of a gentleman who works at the United Nations. Not long after I was obsessed with watching films, often with my late father, everything from silent films to subtitled films. It became such an escape for me, a way to disappear into another world and become someone else. I was encouraged to start telling my own stories, which began in elementary school. I wish I still had some of those scribbling’s, to see how far I have come. I thought about film school later on but that wish never materialized. Yet I have never lost my affinity for the motion picture even to this day. I find myself watching older films more often than current releases because of the recommendations that my father had passed on to me. It’s a way for me to keep him in spirit and with me always.
